Desire to Succeed Linked to Better Grades in College
Date:3/25/2013

ions like Rice provide intellectual environments for any student to flourish. But because college admissions generally does not select directly or heavily on personality traits, admitted students who score higher on measures of conscientiousness will tend to excel in academic pursuits above and beyond what their high-school grade point averages or achievement test scores would suggest by themselves," he explained in the news release.

Further research is needed, according to the study authors.

"Grade point average is just one of many factors that can predict student performance and long-term success," McAbee said. "We hope our findings will encourage research that investigates how different personality traits impact important outcomes."
